What are the Challenges Competing with Fast Food?

Read Transcript

The fact that there there may be a fast food restaurant in the neighborhood, may be easier to get to, are more accessible and obviously much cheaper often than going if you had the option to get a healthy meal some place else. The good news is that many of our meals on wheels recipients are able to access fast food because many of them are home bound and they need assistance with just basic tasks you and I take for granted like, bathing or grooming or getting dressed, they need assistance in doing that.

Over 30 % of the folks that we serve meals on wheels to are already nursing home eligible but we're able to keep them in their own homes because we're getting that daily meal and the social connection and the safety checks. So they're able to stay in their home for as long as they want.
